Conjugate Sn(iv)(pyropheophorbide a)dichloride-(peptide nucleic acid) catalyzes reduction of azobenzene derivatives in the presence of complementary nucleic acid (NA) upon irridiation with red light (660 nm). This is the first red light-induced NA-templated photoreduction. It is highly sensitive to single mismatches in the NA-template and can detect down to 5 nM NAs. This journal is
